We came up with this idea while brainstorming late at night with some fellow cable enthusiasts. Our popular "Peptide" pure OCC copper litz cables features a bundle of seven bundles of litz copper strands with a unique rope-like appearance from the type 2 litz construction, and a Silver Peptide litz wire was already in the works. But what if we made a true hybrid - with independent bundles of silver and copper strands? As a litz construct, the silver and copper stay separate down the length of the wire as the strands are individually insulated. So each strand is like 3 or 4 independent copper and silver cables, a fusion of two metals rather than one metal plated onto another. The idea was too promising to ignore, so finally in 2013 we have added a new wire to our collection which has impressed us with every cable we have applied it to.
DHC Peptide "Fusion" is a 24awg type 2 litz construct of pure OCC silver strands and pure OCC copper strands, with 3 silver bundles and 3 copper bundles of equal size spiralled around a seventh equally sized bundle in the center for an evenly spaced "candy cane" appearance of silver and copper with fine, narrow stripes of each color - and with clear PE insulation. The wire is deep cryogenically treated at the manufacturer's in-house facility to perfect the molecular structure of the metal at an atomic level. The insulation has been revised to a 25% slimmer profile compared to our Symbiote SE's pure copper Peptide litz wire. This is the most compact 24awg IEM cable we have ever offered with a sleek 1.4mm dimension to each strand.
